A celebration of the wool trade, which for many centuries made Suffolk a wealthy county, has taken place at Kentwell Hall.
The Tudor manor house in Long Melford near Sudbury hosted its annual Wool Fair enabling visitors to see the journey of wool from the sheep to cloth earlier this month.
Among the attractions was a shearer working on Kentwell’s flock of Norfolk Horn sheep. Tudor craftsmen and women also worked with wool in the surrounding barns on activities including carding, spinning and weaving.
